Reported in the Pothole (minor) category anonymously at 13:53, Saturday 16 May 2020

Sent to TfL 2 minutes later. TfL ref: FMS2117755.

Dear TFL,

There are potholes and cracks in the North Circular Road causing the worst noise pollution when heavy vehicles passing over. They are located along North Circular Road in front of the following door numbers of 190-220.

The noise pollution causes our house shaking due to the heavy good vehicles and it is becoming more severe to such an extent that radiators, doors, and walls make rattling sound. We are unable to sleep throughout the nights as each time heavy vehicles speeding by the potholes and cracks. There are also speeding motorists with illegal exhaust systems produce very loud pops and mimicking gunshots in the same area. I work from home and the exposure to this excessive noise has caused stress, poor concentration, and productivity losses for my work. I also suffer fatigue from lack of sleep because of these excessive noise problems in my area. Please install more speed cameras in our area and apply strict regulations for better environment. Regards

  • Dear TFL, There are potholes and cracks in the North Circular Road causing the worst noise pollution when heavy vehicles passing over the whole house shakes and at night HGV traveling high speeds makes it hard for us to have a peaceful nights sleep. They are located along North Circular Road in front of the following door numbers of 190-220. There are a number of abandoned vehicles with no road tax or insurance or MOT's making it difficult for the people who live here to park there cars and cyclist riding on the pavement at high speed. The noise pollution causes our house shaking due to the heavy good vehicles and it is becoming more severe to such an extent that radiators, doors, and walls make rattling sound. We are unable to sleep throughout the nights as each time heavy vehicles speeding by the potholes and cracks. There are also speeding motorists with illegal exhaust systems produce very loud pops and mimicking gunshots in the same area. I work from home and the exposure to this excessive noise has caused stress, poor concentration, and productivity losses for my work. I also suffer fatigue from lack of sleep because of these excessive noise problems in my area. Please install more speed cameras in our area and apply strict regulations for better environment.
